First Offender: DUI Penalties
Unless the circumstances of your DUI case allow for enhanced penalties or for a felony upgrade (as may have been shown on a previous screen), then your DUI is most likely a Class A misdemeanor.
A Class A misdemeanor is an offense that is punishable by up to $2500 in court fines and up to 1 year in jail. Sentences may include supervision, probation or conditional discharge.
However, if at the time of the DUI offense you had previously pleaded guilty to or stipulated to the facts supporting a charge or a finding of guilty to a violation of Section 11-503 (Reckless Driving) of the Illinois Vehicle Code or a similar provision of a local ordinance or any similar law or ordinance of another state, and the plea or stipulation was the result of a plea agreement, then you are not eligible for a sentence of supervision.
These penalties are in addition to any other penalties that may be imposed by the court or administrative sanctions of the Secretary of State. Please make your next selection above to determine what other penalties may apply to your DUI case.
